“You Are Who Google Says You Are….”
Our personal branding event was really a master class presented by two leading experts: Anouk Pappers, an online personal branding expert, and Janet Wise, founder of the Branding Room. We all learned a lot! Watch the video.
Immersive Van Gogh and Yoga!
If you’re looking for a little post-impressionism with your centering workout, Immersive Van Gogh has a new offering that fits that very specific bill—35-minute yoga flow classes. You can stretch it out as Imogene Heap wails mmmm, what you said, while the Dutch artist’s signature irises and sunflowers melt around you.
Get into downward dog or cobra pose as the fields of arles morph into Van Gogh’s self-portraits and bedroom scenes. Finally, savasana as the world famous Starry Night, twinkles above you and the dulcet sounds of Debussy lull you into whole complete oneness. The classes are co-presented with Lifeway Foods – each includes a Lifeway kefir to enjoy afterward. Van Yoga to your heart’s content. Vangoghsf.com/yoga-classes
July 8-10. The Windrider Virtual Film Forum
The forum is still virtual this year, and with some truly thoughtful films and discussions. They are a wonderful local organization bringing films that explore challenging issues in our world followed by in-depth, moderated discussions with the filmmakers.
They will screen films on five nights in the first two weeks of July – July 8, 9, 10, 15 and 16. New this year, we will feature live Q&A segments, allowing you to submit questions and engage in compelling conversations with filmmakers after the films. Their goal is to continue bringing these films and filmmakers to an engaged audience to serve as a catalyst for compassionate understanding and challenge us to make a difference in the world and in our local communities. July 8 – 10 and 15-16. Windriderbayarea.org
Fireworks Are Back
While most smaller communities have cancelled displays and parades, SF is welcoming residents and tourists to view the spectacle of the sky lighting up. All restaurants and retail outlets will be open. So grab a city bike and enjoy the beauty of fresh air. Let’s enjoy our Independence from being indoors this past year. Fishermanswharf.org
